    We had asked for a drink three times before it was delivered and this took around 25 minutes. We also requested the day before whether we could take balloons as it was a 50th anniversary celebration and we were told no, so we also emailed asking if anything could be done in terms of just something special to represent the occasion and again we didn’t get any reply whatsoever. We have eaten at this restaurant several times and this is the worst service we’ve had to date.

    We visited for afternoon tea which had been purchased for me as a gift. All staff were lovely and the girl who served us most was extremely attentive and made sure we were taken care of. I didn’t get her name but she had a double braid in her hair and I think a nose piercing. The cakes were lovely. The sandwiches were OK.

    Had high expectations but came away slightly disappointed. The food was good but sadly the service was disappointing. I think the majority of the young servers are quite inexperienced and require a higher level of training, support and guidance from the more experienced staff especially in an establishment that rates itself so highly with prices to match. That said, I do want to come back for lunch and cocktails and look forward to a more enjoyable visit next time.

    We were late (traffic😕) but the team kept our table so that's a plus. Good selection of food but the monkfish & prawn curry lacked flavour. M's blackened cod was good. Service was good - not as spot on as last time. We were seated in the upper section which has great decor but was very noisy. Quite expensive but OK for the occasional treat.

    Really good food and service. We do like this place. It is higher priced than we normally do but sometimes you need to treat yourself. Wish it was a little cheaper and would go more often but that’s a minor gripe. Food always good quality and lovely atmosphere

    We were shown to a very mediocre table in a room at the back of the restaurant . The room was dark and noisy and obviously not where one would want to be. A poor man next to us had to use his phone torch to see the menu and his companion sent her hamburger back as it was too rare. Wish I’d ordered it as I love it rare but the Ivy (amazingly it doesn’t make its own burgers) won’t serve them rare - except last night obviously! The service was poor until most tables left and then it improved a bit. A classic from our waitress when, having waited for ages for a first drinks and enquiring as to where they might be, was ‘do you want me to get them myself’. How rude! The bread which we usually love was stale (as confirmed by our waitress, but not removed from the bill until we queried it)! We were going to remove the not inconsiderable tip, but let it be. She was lucky!

    Not what I excepted. The overall ambiance of the restaurant was that of a canteen. The decoy was interesting but the tables were packed in and the waiting staff looked stiff and stressed. The background music did not fit the venue and although it was turned down fifteen minutes after we arrived its constant repeated base beat became annoying. The food was average but the prices were that of a much higher end venue.

    This was our first visit to The Ivy Winchester . Wow, it lived up to our expectations from the minute we walked in. Food absolutely fantastic, service discreet but prompt. Setting and decor tasteful and beautiful. As for the ladies toilets, so unusually decorated, fabulous. We will definitely be back!

    Only my second time here but the greeting is always so friendly that you feel like a regular. The quality of the food and drinks is very good, and although not 'cheap' I do feel like I get value for money here as both are consistently top quality. The key is (1) the atmosphere (busy/bustling but not obtrusively so) and (2) the service which is always so friendly, efficient and makes you feel valued. Hence why I cam back for a second visit and will certainly return again in future.
